Panasonic interview at Dpreview: The Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 “is coming soon”


Dpreview had a chat with Panasonic engineers and here are some info:

Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7:

We’re developing the 10-25mm F1.7 lens for Micro Four Thirds, that’s coming soon.

MFT verus S lenses:

Compared to MFT lenses the new S lenses have a newly-developed double focus system and an ultrasonic assist system

About the MFT and S system development:

of course we are developing both S-series and G-series at the same time. We have optimized our human resources internally so that we can develop both S series and G series to the highest standard.

About a possible video oriented S camera:

In the future, we’d like to consider the users’ needs: it’s open to users’ feedback.

MFT vs S when it comes to video:

Image stabilization and overheating will be less of an issue, compared to full-frame sensors.

Dpreview editors got the impression that “For now, at least, it seems that Panasonic sees the GH series as its main video/stills camera platform.”

Time to get the new GH6 folks :)
